Facts from the article:
    There will be over 1000 people on the GPS system in the next 18-24 months, growing steadily every year.
    The Department of Corrections has about 10,300 employees with a budget of $1.28 billion a year.
    There are currently 22,000 people incarcerated in Wisconsin.

This is good, it is about time that the taxpayers of Wisconsin know how their money is being spent in the largest spending department in the state.  Currently there is no public documentation that is easily attained to show how, where and what for the money that is used for GPS monitoring.
